Nbisiing Bus Lines continues to offer safe and reliable transportation to our community, serving West Nipissing, Nipissing First Nation and Noth Bay.
It is the policy of Nipissing First Nation and the Education Department to provide safe and cost-efficient transportation for students for educational purposes through Nbisiing Bus Lines. We manage and coordinate transportation services to four local school boards and Nbisiing Secondary School. Priority is given to daily transportation to and from school, however bussing is a privilege and not a right.
Our buses transport approximately 250 students daily to 15 different schools in Sturgeon Falls and North Bay, as well as to Nbisiing Secondary School. Please check with the Education department to see if transportation is available to a school before registering your child.
Nbisiing also provides charters for various programs and functions in and around NFN. The program could not operate without the committed crew of regular and relief drivers from our community and neighbouring communities, as well as our dedicated bussing coordinator.
Our fleet consists of vehicles ranging in size from 7-passenger vans to our 72-passenger buses, and a large para-bus (48 passengers + wheelchair accommodation).

Drivers: Know the Rules!
When driving on a road WITHOUT a median:
- drivers travelling in both directions must stop for a stopped school bus with its upper red lights flashing
- when you approach the bus from the front, stop at a safe distance to let children get on or off the bus and cross the road
- don’t move forward until the red lights have stopped flashing or the bus begins to move
When driving on a road WITH a median:
- traffic coming from the opposite direction is not required to stop.
